because he's extraordinary. indy 500 winner accepts his trophy. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning, norah. i missed you. out of sight, but not out of mind. >> welcome back, charlie. we missed you too. we begin with this. there's emotional reaction after an acquittal of george zimmerman. a jury found him not guilty saturday night in the shooting death of 17-year-old trayvon martin. on saturday large crowds marched into the streets well into the night demanding for justice for martin. interstate 10 was shut down. >> in philadelphia they protested and in atlanta there were a number of demonstrations over the verdict. we begin with don dahler in times square where hundreds of
protester s gathered last night >> reporter: good morning, norah, good morning charlie. the demonstration began in downtown manhattan and moved upstate to the bronx. that's a distance of over nine miles. the new york police department says it was peaceful. protesters started gathered sunday afternoon, a day after the acquittal of george zimmerman. >> justice isn't looking out for us. this verdict has set us back in this country and that's why we're all out here today. >> reporter: soon hundreds of people were marching north to times square, taking over city treats and bringing traffic to a standstill. >> justice for trayvon martin. >> reporter: many believe it was a clear case of racial profiling that led to trayvon martin's death and that the justice system prevailed. >> if the roles were reversed, that man wouldn't have got off.
>> reporter: politicians took to the airways. >> the fact is we have the best judicial system in the world and we respect it. >> if the rule is you've about got to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, there was reasonable doubt there. >> it was a devastating verdict. >> i worry about the young black kids out there who see a justice system that doesn't maybe respond to them. >> reporter: this is an ongoing debate under the circumstances ore trayvon martin's death. protesters say they're planning more protests in the coming weeks. the nypd says there were only minor arrests but the protesters say this is far from over. in fact, there's another rally scheduled for this weekend in the bronx. charlie and norah? >> don dahler, thanks. the president said, quote, i know this case has elicited strong passions, and in the wake of the verdict, i know those passions may be running even higher, but we are a nation of laws and a jury has spoken.
>> george zimmerman face as new set of problems as he moves onto the next chapter of his life. the case first received national attention when mark strassmann reported it right here on "cbs this morning" in march of last year. he joins us now from sanford, florida. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. there have been all sorts of perceptions of him from that f t a vigilante to a victim who stood his ground. not everyone is eager to have him back. zimmerman has his freedom back. his gps ankle monitor is off and he can travel any america but he'll never have the life he left before he killed trayvon martin. attorney mark o'mara defended zimmerman. he said the crime watch volunteer will have to look over his shoulder for the rest of his
life. >> he has to be sr. cautious of his safety because there's a fringe element who have said through tweets and everything else, they want revenge. to his critics, zimmerman's name has become a racial flashpoint sniet boils down to you've about got a 17-year-old kid who was minding his own business, wearing a hoodie, and gets accosted, gets followed by an individual who wants to be a cop. >> reporter: the department of justice has said it will now review the trial records for possible civil rights violations. zimmerman once dreamt of a year in criminal law enforcement. he could again. but first he has to live with the fact that he shot and killed an unarmed teenager. don west helped defend him. >> this is something that will be hard to get over. there's no winners here.
there's no monster here. that's the tragedy. >> reporter: now that the verdict is in, the court will release all the case evidence. charlie and norah, zimmerman could reclaim the gun he used to kill trayvon martin. >> jack ford is with us, what might the just cities department do? >> they said, we'll take a look at this and decide whether there should be any prosecution. the answer's not necessarily. if he was tried again, it wouldn't be for murder and manslaughter. there are certain situations where the same set of facts and circumstances can give rise to different state and federal charges. here ooh's what happens. the state justice department is always very cautious when there's been a state-level trial. >> isn't there a high standard? >> very high standard. it's not enough to disagree with the verdict historically. what they'll do is jump in if f there was a failure to
prosecute. there's a lot to look at, including is there anything different here so statistically it's not probable that it would happen but we've seen in the past, for instance, the rodney king case. it's certain they'll say we're going to do that because he's black. >> don't they have to show or suggest some sort of racial animus? >> yes, that he violated his rights because of his race. that's the important part for the federal department. >> that's one avenue. what about the family in a civil case. >> they could file a civil case and probably a good comparison. we were talking about this in the o.j. simpson case. civil trials are very different. first of all, you're looking for monetary damage. there's no jails involved. it's the families against each
other, but there are differences. the zan ard of proof is much, much lower. also in a civil trial they could compel george zimmerman to testify where he couldn't be compelled to testify in a criminal case. >> what kind of second-guessing will there be? >> we talked about this. it wasn't a slam dunk. it's an easier case to prove than murder, but the reality is with trials and verdicts, there's always disagreement, but here there shouldn't be real surprise. >> jack ford, thank you. and nsa leaker edward snowden has documents he claims detailing how the national security agency actually works. that's according to his main contact in the press, glenn greenwald. it could show people how to evade nsa surveillance. >> snowden spoke to reporters
friday for the first time since he arrived at the moscow international airport. >> a month ago i lived at home with great family in great comfort. >> our senior correspondent job miller is with us. he's the former assistant to the director of national intelligence. good morning. >> good morning. >> if he has the nsa blueprints, what does that mean and how damaging could it be? >> what it means is in every program in the nsa, there's usually a brief document that explains what the program is, what it's for, how it works, how it relates to other programs. it won't have the collection platforms, meaning if we had a bog in putin ice program it wouldn't lift that. if you were an adversary, you
would look at that and say, oh, this is how it works, so let me use countermeasures to close up the vulnerabilities. it could be very helpful to the u.s. edward snowden has been viewed by some as a whistle blower. now he's saying i know how they work and anybody can evade it. what's the motive behind it now? >> that's hard question. our story begins simply enough. i want to tell americans in the dragnet that sweeps up communications of terrorism spies, some of their communications get volumevacuum that and people might look at it. it's a very different story where people might say here are the documents on how the nsa collects against all of our foreign adversaries. >> as he's trying to seek asylum in russia. >> exactly. so theme atticly he's mad an interesting turn here, and it's
hard to understand. unless you boil it down to the ideology which spying is wrong, which all countries are supposed to stop, or it should be done out in the open, at which point it's not spying. >> what's your best guess as to what could happen with edward snowden? >> we're in a nightmare scenario, charlie. one likely scenario is the u.s. pressure against all the place he wants to go succeeds and the great law of consequences, we push a guy with a great bag of eavesdropping, there would be a lot. >> and he claims he has a dead man's pack. what's that? >> he east left things with trusted associates. if anything happens to him, supposedly these people have the keys to know how to open these things and outspill the rest of
the thing. >> thanks, john. one of the top envoys is on the ground in egypt. he's the highest ranking person since the ousting of president mohamed morsi. margaret brennan has more. >> reporter: william burns will hold high-level talks. it's a controversial visit because those rulers came to power through a military coup. thousands of mohamed morsi supporters continue to take to the streets as deputy secretary burns means with the military regime that ousted morsi from power just 12 days ago. he remains under house arrest. burns will push for morsi's release and appeal for a halt to what the u.s. calls politically motivated attacks. violence has killed 92 people in recent days, most of them supporters of the main president. the main goal? pressure for leaders to hole
elections and to regain stability. the deteriorating security situation is a worry for prime minister benjamin netanyahu. >> our concern is the peace treaty with egypt. one of the foundations of that peace treaty was the usa given to egypt. >> and the obama administration is under pressure to remind cairo that the remainder of that aid could depend on their actions. on sunday senators john mccain and lindsey graham called for the administration to suspend assistance in order to force democratic change, a threat that may be limited. the senate acknowledged they should continue their u.s. terrorist agreement and agreement with egypt. secretary burns will also meet face to face with activists, business leaders and religious leaders of the community, many of whom remain suspicious of the
u.s. mow tigs. cory monteith, the star of "glee," was found dead in his hotel room in canada on saturday. he was being treated for a drug addiction and had checked himself into a rehab program. jeff berardelli is tracking our weather. jeff, how hot will it get? >> charlie, it looks like low to mid-90s for a very good chunk of the country this upcoming week. it is not long but it will last for a few day. it will be 95 on the i-95 corridor from hartford all the way down to philadelphia. notice temperatures out to the west a little cooler, but those will heat up as the heat wave expands to the west. the jet stream is way to the north locking all the cool air up in canada. temperatures will be in the 90s. temperatures will be up to 100

day on the polo pitch. the sport of kicks is still apparently the sport of kings-in-waiting. he spent part of the day on a pony with more modern transportation at the ready in case the call comes. >> i believe a helicopter is on standby. >> reporter: other people are on stand bitoo. the paparazzi are staked out at the hospital where princess kate is at. >> i think a lot of people here think that it will be a girl. it would be lovely for a queen to know in her lifetime there are two kimgs coming, there will be another queen beyond her
reign. >> reason enough for the expectant public to look its best. in the meantime this is a bookmaker's paradise. you can bet on what baby will come, what sex it will be and what they expect. the due date would have been yesterday. >> thank you, mark. time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. wall street jury room says china's economy is not growing as fast as it used to. economists expect china's 2013 drought rate to be the lowest in 20 years.

cars. that's the way it's been for 50 years here in the u.s. what's changed now is the tesla says they can sell direct. they want to be lie -- imagine amazon selling you a car. they have some stores but only 30, 35. you would actually bypass the dealers and that has dealers upset. >> there are laws protecting dealers, right? >> yes. in most states you can't bypass them. they're the guys with the little league teams, that can run a small town and keep legislators from letting people sell direct. it's different for them because they're more of a silicon valley model. they're making an electric car but they're also saying we can get the best technology from all sorts of places.
the frame is coming from great britain. it's very high end and very expensive car. >> but the dealer -- they don't need a dealer network is. there anything that can stop them? >> yeah. there's a lot of franchise laws that say yo cannot sell direct. they tried in texas to get this law changed. that's a tough nut to crack. there's an argument that can be made. dealers do serve a purple. they do come up. they help you with financing. they can also help you with service, which is a really big issue. >> what's tesla's answer for that? >> they have a higher quality and you basically need to get out of the way and let sort of transformational, you know, sort of thing happen. >> but tesla, that's what's great about these cars. they're not only rethinking the model of a car but they're also
rethinking the way we buy cars and dealerships which are so much power. >> are they going to make it, tesla? >> yeah. right now you're talking about a manufacturer that's only going to put out 20,000 car this year, compare that to just the toyota corolla. >> this car sells for about 90 thousand when you add everything up. >> yes. >> is there anybody who tries to do that with a small inexpensive car so he can do the same thing? >> they're trying. they started out with something called the tesla rosa. this comes in. they're coming out with model x which is sort of an suv and is going to be priced less than

pros here's how you should have done it a year and a half ago. i don't have anything approaching that level of sophistication to do that. the reason why said it is i like the dynamic you can have with the audience. >> here's what's interesting to me. you said, i don't know anything about ratings and i have the ratings to fwhak up, but if i were the president of cnn, i would put the smartest people in a newsroom and i would ask them this question. what would a utopia look like and what would stop us from doing that? my question is the newsroom your utopian news show? >> you know, no. and here's why. i don't know enough to make a utopian news show. >> i have to tell you the difference between writing a show and doing the news is the twirchs between drawing a binlding and doing a building which is to say they're almost
always unrelated. >> the thing that i like about the show is when you look at the news today, the zimmerman verdict, ash ya na plane crash, weight for the royal babe, do you see any of those making their way on southbound 2 of the newsroom? >> it would be season 3. first of all, no one's asked us to do a third season. >> would you like a third season? >> of course. wh who wouldn't. >> i would like to ask you about cory monteith. you've been very candid about your drus use and he has too. before he died he was talk with friends and before he died he was in such a good place. that's why it's such a surprise. >> let me be clear i don't know any of the surkss surrounding what happened to cory and i wouldn't want to speculate on
anything. i want to make clear to your viewers. i had a cocaine addiction for ten years. this last april, it's been 12 years that i've been clean. being in good mood, that's dangerous time. >> how so? >> once you're clean and sober, you don't know how to celebrate anymore. you've forgotten how do that. for me those have been the strarjest times, opening night, winning an award. what you want to do is the stick with your friending frmt but something so fantastic is happening that's the moment that you think, boy, i deserve it tonight or this is the way i know how to celebrate. frankly what you have to do is go to bed early that night. >> that's why i wut stunning to his friends.
he was good. >> yeah. if there's an addict that you love, don't look for them to be in a terribly dark place. it can happen just as easily when you're on top of the world. >> back to "the newsroom," what gift do you have and what's the gift to lie dodger. >> they used to take me to see place when i was way too young to under like "who's afraid of virginia woolf" when i was 9d years old. that becomes your new style. >> in the news. reus, charlie rose, jane fonda who plays a character says she thinks her character would have slept with charlie rose. >> yeah. explain this to me, please.
